Aliki Zymaritou was born in 1955 in Poland to Greek parents. She studied painting at Scuola Libera del Nudo at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze in Italy between 1984-1989.
An Italian critic called her a 'leitmotif espressionista', meaning that certain identifiable motifs recur in her work, such as the human eyes, the Christian cross, and branches from nature. Her expressionism is identifiable for its pale sense of color and strong figural gestures. For Zimaritou art is about stance in life. Holding that everything in life happens for man without man's mediation, she is in constant search of humanity.
Aliki Zimaritou has presented the following personal exhibitions: Art Gallery, Livorno, Italy (1989); Gruppo Donatello, Florence, Italy (1989); Il Punto, Florence, Italy (1989); Dada Art Gallery, Athens (1990); Eumaros Gallery, Athens (1993); Municipal Gallery, Lavrion (1993); and Enallax Gallery, Athens (1994).
